What People are Saying

It was my first trip to Australia, that too for higher education. Being a student, I had my own apprehensions, along with different suggestions from different people. While I was conducting my own research to find out the best rates for forex, I landed upon the Thomas Cook website, which offered me some very convenient student services in addition to my basic requirement of buying Australian dollars. I never had to look back after that. Thank you, Thomas Cook.

I had planned a surprise trip for my wife to Australia, for our first wedding anniversary. Buying forex was the only task left after I had made all the other arrangements. During all this while I had a close eye on the Australian dollar rate, considering that generally it is very high, however I couldn’t figure the right time to buy the dollar. Thanks to the Thomas Cook experts team who advised me on the way around, and I ended up buying the currency at the best rates possible.
Chiranjit Hira
I had some basic queries before I could decide of buying AUD, and I must say that the Thomas Cook team was professional enough in handling all of them. So much so that later when I returned from my trip I had no doubts in my mind about selling the spare AUD to Thomas Cook and the service quality was still intact.
